Begin Planting Soft Fruit

If you have empty vegetable beds after the harvestGrowing and picking your own Soft Fruit is such a wonderful experience and you don't need a huge garden to be able to grow some of your own.

They need to be planted from autumn to early spring so now is the perfect time to begin planting these superb plants in your own garden.

Raspberries, Strawberries, Blackberries, Gooseberries and Currants can all be planted any time from November to March provided the soil is not frozen or waterlogged. They will grow in most soils but a bit of preparation beforehand will reap dividends for your future crops. Make sure that the site is in a sunny spot.
